Match Report: My first gig as Team Manager for a while this year and this week tested my (lack of) credentials for the role. Organise the white shirts so we didn’t clash with Jamo; no ref allocation and finally, just as I was enjoying a beer at the pub on Saturday night, Sandy alerts me we have nets up as the game prior to ours had become a forfeit.

Sunday morning and I managed to negotiate a deal with the young man who had stood in to help his sister out, in the AW game prior to us, who didn’t have a ref either – fortunately didn’t have to present Paul’s offer to ensure he didn’t miss a game of football

Then the water bottles go missing! Quick word with Margaret & 16 new Powerade bottles were found in the clubhouse and filled with water

I had told Marty to start me on the bench & thank goodness as I was knackered by kick off. Game highlights were:

– two goals from Lowndsey in the first half – a tap in & a typical header from a Thor corner
– great ball movement as Jamo put 11 behind the ball
– Thor kicking the ball away in the box on many occasions when surely having a shot at goal was the better option
– Paul getting upset at Thor
– Tolley moved into midfield for a player of the week performance topped off with a smart curled finish from the edge of the box
– Double Fist making a few vital saves when Jamo broke
